R&S®PRISMON is an innovative and versatile software-based solution for monitoring and multiviewing of audio/video content. It supports the present and future plethora of standards for content transport and media formats, both in legacy and modern IP-based environments. In addition, it offers a comprehensive set of protocols for OTT/streaming scenarios.
Multiviewer receives IP video input from three sources: on the leftmost “SFP 1” 10 GbE front panel port, and on the two 10 GbE back plane Ethernet ports. The two 10 GbE backplane Ethernet ports support up to six SMPTE 2022-6 (uncompressed) feeds per port (12 total). The front input supports up to six SMPTE 2022-6 (uncompressed) feeds via the Aperi Uncompressed over IP App.
Multiviewer output is split into a 16 tile HD-SDI for display, forming a 4x4 mosaic which is outputted via HD-SDI on the rightmost front panel “SFP 4” port. Each tile can be labeled to show its multicast address, as well as incorporating dynamically definable and static text.
Each input includes an analyzer, which detects for frozen picture, blank screen, or audio loss from any particular source. If an error is detected, the UI will indicate an issue with that particular tile via the alarm system. This alarm system is available via a common interface, and is exposed in the Multiviewer API.
Supports up to six SMPTE 2022-6 IP video inputs from the 10 GbE SFP 1 port on an Aperi Microserver.
Supports up to six SMPTE 2022-6 IP video inputs from each of the 10 GbE backplane Ethernet ports (6 + 6) on the Aperi A1105 Chassis.

vm_dmv is a true revolution in multiviewer technology. Leveraging the power of IP using Lawo’s advanced V__matrix IP video routing & processing platform, vm_dmv lets you build a true 4k UHD multiviewer that can easily grow and adapt to suit your unique requirements. Build a system as small as 24 inputs and 4 control heads, or as large as 768 inputs with 128 heads – and beyond.
The secret lies in the pairing of Lawo’s unique LiveView™ technology and V__matrix architecture. vm_dmv “virtual module” apps run on C100 blades inside a Lawo V__matrix rack unit, which accepts SDI and 40GbE connections. Combining LiveView™ with the ability to “cluster” C100 processing blades keeps bandwidth requirements low, while enabling incredible scalability. Need more inputs or more control heads? Simply load another vm_dmv module to increase system capacity.
vm_dmv takes full advantage of modern network design. It utilizes a distributed architecture, with multiple software modules running on C100 blades within V__matrix frames connected via IP. Individual modules can be hosted in the same frame, or located in different frames within your facility — even in an entirely different location altogether. Which means you can also have multiviewer heads wherever you need them: Master Control, remote production facilities, even OB vans. No other multiviewer system can give you this kind of flexibility.
Traditional multiviewers require massive amounts of bandwidth because they generate control head PiPs using incoming video signals at full-scale. vm_dmv solves the bandwidth problem with cutting-edge LiveView™ MIP-mapping technology. Each incoming signal is optimized and downscaled, then served as four simultaneous streams of differing sizes. These streams become the PiPs used in each multiviewer head; once a source is present, it can be displayed by any (or every) head in the system. LiveView™, coupled with V__matrix’s 40GbE IP backbone, provides true bandwidth efficiency, ultra-low latency, and one-to-many source distribution.
vm_dmv is space-efficient, too. Each V__matrix rack frame accommodates two C100 blades, making it possible to deploy a 48-8 vm_dmv multiviewer system using only 1RU of space. And because the system is built on a true-IP backbone utilizing the ST2110 and ST2022 standards, you can build a distributed architecture, with V__matrix frames placed adjacent to source inputs and connected via Ethernet —instead of running cable bundles to the central rack room.
A groundbreaking multiviewer deserves an equally groundbreaking control and configuration system. vm_DMV is controlled with Lawo’s “theWALL”, a unique HTML5-based GUI that makes mosaic configuration with borders, colors, UMDs, tallies and more a simple case of drag-and-drop. Configure any monitor wall, route signals, change mosaic layouts, save and load user presets. theWALL does all this and more, with a smart, intuitive touch interface that’s a snap to use. Ideal for EICs, line producers and operators, theWALL gives every member of your production team the power to change their monitor wall layouts on-the-fly in seconds flat.
Helm, allows the design of a control system dedicated to your operators’ requirements; there’s no clutter of unnecessary controls or information and no risk of confusion between channels as you switch from one manufacturer UI to another. There’s no hunting for the right buttons to press. We can help you design and implement Helm control panels, and you’ll have all the tools to modify and extend them as your requirements change.
Totally customisable: All the control you need, none that you don’t
Smaller footprint: Not all environments have room for multiple hardware panels
Lower cost: Helm panels run on entry-level PCs, or even on mobile devices via WebCentre
Faster training: Only one system to learn for new operators
Enhanced productivity: Simpler interfaces mean operators can work faster and more effectively
Extend and replace: You can add or change equipment in the facility without impacting operators.

The UE Series includes Multiviewers that support either 4 or 8 4K/UHD HDMI 2.0 inputs as well as HDMI 2.0 and 12G outputs. Models are available with or without KVM Functions. As with all TAHOMA Multiviewers, the UE Series if fully featured,Apantac now announces its second generation of UE multiviewers, which include a cascading feature, are more compact (almost half the depth) and consume less power. The UE series now also includes the UE-4-DP, which offers Display Port inputs instead of HDMI 2.0.The UE-4-II and UE-4-K-II models can be cascaded together as well as cascaded with the Apantac Mi-8 12G-UHD, an 8x1 UHD multiviewer with inputs up to 12G SDI. The cascade feature ensures users can combine more source inputs as well as mix input formats on the same display - all without extra latency. For example, user can cascade one UE-4K-II with one UE-4-II and one Mi-8 12G-UHD, thereby displaying up to 8x HDMI plus 8x 12G SDI signals on the monitor and control up to four HDMI computers from a single keyboard and mouse. The maximum number of units in a cascade is four, with a maximum of four UE-4-II, two UE-4-K-II and one SDI multiviewer.The KVM function allows multiple computers connected to the Multiviewer to be controlled via a single mouse and keyboard. Users simply move the mouse from window to window (on their display) to switch the control from one computer to another one. A single operator can visually monitor and control up to eight computers on a single console with a UHD or HD monitor. Via the single console, the user can easily switch between Multiviewer layouts using predefined keyboard shortcuts.
